Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

OK in the drivers side dash fuse panel check fuses labeled sam fuse, wiper stage 1-2 fuse, and washer fuse, in the underhood fuse panel location check fuse 3

I've checked the fuses and from I can tell they appear to be good.
Mercedes Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 4 months ago

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
No, I do not have a test light....
Mercedes Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 4 months ago

ok so you can try switch out the wiper relay in in drivers interior fuse panel, there are 2 of them stage 1 and stage 2

Ask Your Own Mercedes Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Are the wiper relays in that drivers side fuse panel or that fuse panel under the rear seat? I'm not sure where the relays are located, I only saw fuses in the driver's side fuse panel no relays.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Could you send me a diagram of what they look like and where they are located?

Mercedes Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 4 months ago

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
If I'm looking at the right thing, I do not see other relays that look those two in the main fuse box under the hood.
Mercedes Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 4 months ago

Ask Your Own Mercedes Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
No that didn't work either. Could you send numbered chart of the fuses and relays in the main fuse box?
Mercedes Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 4 months ago

Ask Your Own Mercedes Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago

Customer reply replied 4 months ago

Mercedes Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 4 months ago
